Terry, many thanks for your confirmation.
I can't help telling everyone that when I replaced my rear Wheel cylinders with Brand new Assemblies (as they were cheaper from UK inc post than what Brake Parts ABS wanted just for the bloody seals!), the brakes improved by at least 10%, but the HANDBRAKE "feel" and adjustability was like 150% improvement ! 
Is it true there's no exclusive difference in the fitting specs of the ESCORT Mk1 Master Cylinder that would easily accomodate our Capri Mk1's ?

The original Capri V6 rear wheel cylinders have a 0.70 inch diameter bore, whereas the 1600 models used a 0.75 inch diameter bore that, as I understand it, is the only difference in the braking system between the 4 and 6-cylinder models. As for the Escort Mk.1 Master Cylinder, I have no idea, except to say that the Mk.1 Escort was released in March, 1970, nearly a full year after the Capri was released in early May, 1969.

Current ride:
'83 Mk.3 Capri, 2.8i, 5-spd

Quick question to Special owners, does your car have the metal strip and rubber seal along the bonnet slam panel?  Mine has holes for it (like my 3000E does-which is pre Facelift, and my RS had one which obviously is facelift), only just noticed it

Capri The car I always promised myself
